Someone commented on his swollen forehead, and he laughed. "That's not punishment," he said. "It's old age. The big mistake I made today was throwing the ball to Lenny Moore in the second quarter. It was an inside hook, but I thought Moore was open to the outside and I tried to lob it over Ed Meador. I was off balance. The pass was short and the ball went into Meador's hands. That was the turning point in the game." As Unitas threw the ball, Jones was twined around his legs, earnestly trying to twist them off. "That may be the only time I've ever been glad I didn't get the quarterback down," Jones said later.
From that interception the Rams marched to a touchdown which put them ahead to stay, 10-7. Jack Pardee, who intercepted one of Unitas' passes, said, "Last week, when we beat Green Bay here, we beat the bully on the block, the kid who always picks on you and hits you in the head. This week we showed we can beat anyone."
Sunday the Rams meet the bully again, only this time he is in his own backyard. If the Rams can duplicate their performance against the Colts, the bully may be in for yet another beating.
